Woman honors sister’s memory through Purple Purse Challenge

Ninety-eight percent of domestic violence victims suffer a form of financial abuse. It’s what sometimes keeps someone with their abusive partner. That or the fear of losing their life.

One woman knows the devastation. Karen Nordsick lost her sister Laurie Kepner to domestic violence.

Karen joined us in studio to share her determination to help women like her sister.

She’s behind the Purple Purse Challenge. It’s a campaign that raises funds for women trying to escape domestic violence.
